    i truly don’t know what to say, except that my heart is filled with gratitude for cheezland and the cheezpeepz.

    totte did have an easy passing, he crossed the rainbow bridge with a little smile on his face – he was so ready to meet all the friends from our life here in sweden and our life as citizens of cheezland – all the fur-, scale-, shell-, feather- and other friends we have gotten to know, and care about through ichc…

    i felt myself surrounded by you all and your love for your fellow citizen, and although i cried when totte crossed the bridge, i also smiled, because i am so grateful for the ability to love and be loved…

    again: thank you!

    Love,

    mumrik

  6. Dear Eric,

    Will you please take care of my grumpy old Tommie? He passed over the rainbow bridge just this morning. He will be missed on this side of the bridge.

    As usual I’m late getting on and reading all the posts for Matt & Boomer. As soon as I saw your abatar, I knew I’d have to get the tissue box. Now that box is about half empty. When you lose someone it’s always hard to read about another person’s loss, especially on this site. I’ve never seen such a caring, happy group (unless it’s my friends at work), always so thoughtful.
    Your majesty (cweenmj), your story gift is truly heaven sent. That comes from a heart so big, the world can’t hold it.
